San Diego, Ca. (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Principles Of Grace is the story of Grace, an overweight teenage girl who is distraught over the tragic death of her parents. Her desperate need to fit in with a group of kids her own age leaves her vulnerable, and she falls for a 17-year old gang leader named Sly. Sly is the only boy who has ever shown Grace any attention, and is the ultimate villain. He uses illegal drugs as an instrument of seduction to draw teenage girls to his ulterior motive—sexual violence. Sly lures Grace into a sadistic gang initiation where she is gangbanged (forced to have sex with every boy in the gang). The cruel, sadistic ritual demoralizes Grace and destroys her sense of self-worth.
The story’s unlikely hero is Daniel, an incredibly dedicated teacher who attempts to help Grace turn her life around. Daniel’s means of transformation are the Principles Of Grace, an ethereal wisdom taught to him by Free Spirit, a Native American medicine man. Daniel draws upon the principles to help Grace develop self-esteem and recover from her traumatic gang experience.
The principles are based on the teaching of numerous top authors within the field of human achievement, including Og Mandino, Jack Canfield, Anthony Robbins and Wayne Dyer, among others. The Principles Of Grace program is designed to help readers find meaning in life, build self-confidence, overcome low self-esteem, set goals and land their dream job.
“I met a surprisingly street wise ninth grader named Tiffany, who told me that it was common knowledge at her school (Lincoln High School in San Diego), that for a girl to join a gang she had to be sexed in,” says Hawkins. “Tiffany was asked to join three different gangs during her first week in high school. She said that many girls do it because they think it will make them popular.”
“One of the primary reasons that I wrote Principles Of Grace was to raise awareness about these sexual predators,” says Hawkins. “Parents, teachers and teenage girls need to know just how dangerous these boys really are.”
